Al Hazmi, Adnan Nasser; Ahmad, Aznan Che
World Journal of Education, v8 n2 p66-72 2018
The issue concerned with enhancing support to the intellectually disabled students for enabling them to access the general education has gained significant importance in the recent years all over the world. The intellectually disabled students suffer from neurodevelopmental disorders that acts as a barrier to the normal functioning of the brain and slow down the learning abilities and proper development of an individual. The presence of intellectual disabilities affects both the mental and physical well-being of the students by causing issues for them to understand, think logically, speak, remembering things, and find solutions to the problems. Many research studies are conducted across the world for finding the ways and designing innovative models that can help in increasing the access to general education for these students with special needs. The universal design for learning framework also aims at providing support to the intellectually disabled students for gaining access to general education by enhancing their intellectual functioning and ability to adapt.
